Artifacts in Higher Ground are unique items of immense power. No character may have more than one of them at a time. Attempting to pick one up while one is already in your possession will result in a massive explosion (2000 points of magic damage in a very large radius) and the loss of both artifacts.
These artifacts grant ability enhancements. Only one can ever be used per character, so choose wisely. They may not be used before level 55. Six grant +2 to one stat and they all grant one or more special effects.

If you use a stat artifact, it is used up and you are no longer carrying it. In other words, characters who have used an artifact can carry an artifact item. For example wizards who have used the Eye of Vecna can carry the Ssith torch.
Be careful in non-immo places when picking up an artifact. If you already have one in your inventory you will cause a huge area 2000 Magical damage explosion in addition to losing both artifacts.
